There's another big movie opening this weekend, and it's one that may actually be more of a fun date-night flick than Fifty Shades of Grey. Kingsman: The Secret Service is a stylish, gadget-and action-packed James Bond-ish thriller starring Colin Firth, Samuel Jackson, and the stunning Sofia Boutella. Trained as a dancer and acrobat, Boutella literally kicks butt as the prosthetically-enhanced Gazelle. She's officially a bad guy, but that doesn't mean she won't be wooing hearts in the audience.
The 32-year-old Parisian visited New York City earlier this week to celebrate the film's U.S. premiere at the SVA Theater, but she managed to take in a few sights as well. Here, Boutella takes us behind the scenes and shares her whirlwind day that started in Central Park and ended at The High Line Hotel. (Should we tell her that those squirrels can be dangerous?)
Go behind the scenes of Sofia's day with her premiere diary below.
